I was detained for 3 weeks, says pastor accused of defrauding Atiku’s wife
Nsikakabasi Akpan-Jacobs, a pastor charged with defrauding Titi Atiku Abubakar, the wife of former vice-president Atiku Abubakar of N918 million, has alleged that he was detained for three weeks by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, in Abuja on Mrs. Abubakar’s orders.
Akpan-Jacobs made the revelation yesterday at an Ikeja High Court on the second day of the trial-within-trial proceedings to determine the voluntariness of his statements to the anti-graft agency.
While being led in evidence by Amos Ibe, his defence counsel, Mr. Akpan-Jacobs said: “I was first arrested by the Lagos office of the EFCC.
“On the days when I honoured their invitation, I gave statements at various times to different operatives namely– Mr. Dapo, Mr. Kabir, Mr. Lawal as well as a team of investigators comprising a lady and two men.
“I received an unexpected call from the EFCC on Feb. 5, 2009 which I honoured and when I arrived, I was taken straight to the airport.
“When I asked what was wrong, they told me that it was based on ‘orders from above’, I immediately called my wife and lawyer to inform them of the development.
“When I arrived in Abuja, I was taken to an underground detention facility, the sureties in my bail by the EFCC were to be two directors in the civil service, who had landed property in Abuja.
“When I saw the bail conditions, I told the second defendant that these people want to keep me here in perpetuity.”
The defendant, who is Mrs. Abubakar’s business partner, alleged that he was taken from the underground detention facility belonging to the EFCC in Abuja and was interrogated by Mr. Pascal, Oron, and Baba-kura, operatives of the EFCC.
